Uy! New home! Or is it an extension? Congrats and keep us updated.

Actually, we will have a house blessing tomorrow but truth is, the house has leak issues that need to be adressed...

Leak on the sides of the polycarbonate roof covering the garage. Perhaps there should be a fence. The water is falling through the open area meant for ventilation (the left side.)

Can't really see from the photo. Kulang kaya sa klibe (gradient)?

Gumagapang ba from the edge into the "indoor" area instead of dripping on the outside?

You got it right Ding, sorry for the pic. Some water falls through the edge into the garage; open gap of about 2 feet for ventilaton designed by the architect. It becomes a waterfall when raining for now. There are beads of water left in the polycarbonate indicating the "kliyebe" is too small.

Anyhoo, this is my last post regarding that since this is nick's thread =). There are issues that crop up, and yet a thrill when having a house built.

Since we are on the tiling part of the house.

Saan kaya pwede mag pa cut ng bevel sa granite tiles? Or kaya ba sya i cut ng ordinary angle grinder with a jig?
Meron na bang gumagawa sa inyo nito?

Plano ko kasi granite tiles na lang ilalagay ko sa kitchen, kaso gusto ko beveled yung dugtungan nya parang sa wood hindi kita yung end grain.

@Nick

I think your talking about homogeneous tiles not the natural granite.

Homogeneous tiles can be cut to 45 degree using grinder but you need a set of polishing pads para maalis mo yun mga bungi. Based on our experience mas prone mabungi yun kanto pag naka 45 degree cut lalo na pag tinamaan ng matigas na bagay.

I suggest you use natural granite slab 18mm thick (3/4") for kitchen countertop. Natural granite slab cost around P1000-5000+/ sq.m.
